Capturing summer memories with Truprint #WhereverLifeTakesYou

This is the first summer holiday for us where Ethan has been at school and we have had the juggle of taking care of his six and a bit weeks off alongside work, annual leave and all the things we want to pack into it.

So far we have... visited Monkey Forest. Had breakfast with the Cadbury characters at Cadbury World. Enjoyed a day out with Thomas the Tank Engine at the Watercress Line. Done lots of crafts, including painting rocks and playing with a Fuzzikins Campervan playset. Wolfed down a delicious meal at Oldbury Cookhouse and Pub. Spent days at home enjoying simple things and time together. Dressed up as pirates at Cannock Chase. Visited the sea animals on an Octonauts Shark Mission at National Sea Life Centre Birmingham.

And we've stayed with my parents, went to family parties and probably a few other things that I have forgotten but my phone will remind me of when I scroll through the photos!

But like so many of us, I keep those memories locked in my phone and don't often take time to print them, save them or display them. Which is a shame.

Wanderlust’ [won-der-luhst]: a word with German roots meaning a “strong, innate desire to travel.” 

Leading photo printing platform Truprint is encouraging us all to embrace the now, capture those moments and find ways of keeping the memories that mean the most to us alive - and this is why I am so keen to be involved in their #WhereverLifeTakesYou campaign.

"Even for the home birds amongst us, the lure of golden sands or City sights is sometimes too strong to ignore. But, life doesn't always take us to exotic locations and fancyschmancy hotels we see in Hollywood films.

"Life itself is a journey - and we're all in it for the long haul. Taking the rough with the smooth, we need to embrace wherever life takes us and make the most of the memories we create along the way."

Hear, hear!

I have been posting highlights from our summer holidays so far on my Instagram (there's a 'highlight' just for our #46daysofsummer pics) and my plan is to either make some photo prints or a photo gift (#gifted) using the Truprint app at the end of our adventures to make something special for Ethan to remember this time by. Maybe a canvas print or a cushion, using our favourite summer snaps. There's a great selection to choose from, the process is really easy and we've always been really pleased with the quality of the results, for the price too!

Follow me on Instagram to find out what we make, to keep those memories close, wherever life takes us.
